    Hmmm... I have temporarily misplaced my BW book so I can't say for sure what this is. It isn't a jump badge as that has a parachute inside the wreath instead of a diving one. The material looks like moleskin and is definitely BW shaped. Not DDR. When I find my darned book I'll confirm what it is/isn't.

    I dont think its jump wings...Im reminded of air assault badges or airborne for some reason...a diving eagle on a winged background made me think Luftwaffen but then again, i could be wrong?

    That's what it might be, but I didn't want to say until I found my book Smile I do know the early jump wings had a diving eagle, but it was a metal badge with oakleaves behind it and not wings.
